Michael Liang

Adrian Mateos raised to 200,000 on the button, and Michael Liang defended from the big blind. The flop came {k-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} and Liang checked to Mateos who continued for 135,000. Liang check-raised to 465,000, and Mateos called.

The turn brought the {7-Spades} and both players checked to the {j-Spades} on the river. Liang took almost two minutes before finally sticking in a bet of 1,775,000. Mateos thought about it for over four minutes, struggling with his decision. He eventually called, and Liang showed him {k-Diamonds}{5-Spades} for two pair to earn the pot.
